My Fair Lady (FUSE)

  • The Penn State Downtown Theater 146 S. Allen Street State College, PA, 16803 United States (map)

My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from Professor Henry Higgins, a phonetician, so that she may pass as a lady. Called "the perfect musical", the 1956 Broadway production was a momentous hit, setting a record for the longest run of any major musical theater production in history. With such tunes as "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", "The Rain in Spain", "With a Little Bit of Luck", "I Could Have Danced All Night", "On the Street Where You Live", "Get Me to The Church on Time", and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" it's no wonder everyone, not just Henry Higgins, falls in love with Eliza Doolittle.
